On the afternoon of the 21st, the match between IBK Industrial Bank of Korea and Hyundai Engineering & Construction in the first round of the women’s division of the ‘2023-2024 Dodram V League’ was held at the Hwaseong Indoor Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do.
Ahead of this season, ‘Minky’ Hwang Min-kyung will wear the IBK Industrial Bank uniform from Hyundai Engineering & Construction as a free agent, and Kim Joo-hyang will go to his former team Hyundai Engineering & Construction, where he played from 2017 to 2019, as Hwang Min-kyung’s compensation player.
Before the game, the two did not have time to meet during the swim-up due to the opening ceremony. So, we were unable to properly say hello to players from our previous teams.
In the first set, when IBK Industrial Bank of Korea was leading 8-4, IBK Industrial Bank of Korea Abercrombie attempted a dig during an attack by Hyundai Engineering & Construction MoMA. However, Hyundai Engineering & Construction coach Kang Seong-hyung requested a video review of defensive success and failure.
Meanwhile, on the court, Hwang Min-kyung and Kim Joo-hyang engaged in a fierce battle of nerves across the net. Hwang Min-kyung took a big action against Kim Joo-hyang and assured her of the success of her defense, and she shook her head and said that it was her defense failure. After a while, the video review result showed that the defense was a failure, and Hwang Min-kyung lowered his head with a disappointed expression.
In this day’s match, Hyundai Engineering & Construction had an uneasy start after losing the first set, but won three sets in a row with a set score of 3-1 (21-25 25-21 25-18 25-23).
